The Cathedral: Cast in the role of medieval monks, our group had to locate the plans for the new cathedral that had been stolen by a group bent on preventing its construction.
Shogun's Shadow: As thieves in the night, we had to sneak into the Shogun's house and steal evidence of a crime before he returned home to discover our treachery.
Pros: We absolutely loved everything about our experience at the Mystique Room, from the clean and comfortable waiting room to our opportunity to pose next to the themed props at the culmination of our escape. The overarching storyline was excellent and helped create a clear sense of purpose and suspense at various points throughout the game. The set design and decorations in the room were nothing short of AMAZING adding to a total immersive feeling. The attention to detail added realistic touches from the quality of the set construction to the emphasis on sound effects. We loved every minute of the game and often stopped in awe to point out little details at the risk of running out of time. The puzzles were carefully thought out and matched the storyline in both design and visual decoration. The puzzles were so unique that we had not seen anything like them before nor since. The game master was a very kind individual who carefully monitored our progress and celebrated our accomplishments in the end. The added touch of costumes and props helped make the experience all the more memorable.
Cons: None that we could see. This is a top-notch business and hands-down our favorite room escape experience. We would play the games over and over again if we could. Our only regret was that the Pharaoh game was booked during the time we were there! Next time Budapest, next time...
Mystique Room sweeps the board with all of our awards plus we created a special gold star for general all-around awesomeness in honor of their work.
